The LRS Student Waitlist Form is currently closed. It will open as a waitlist for Spring quarter on Friday, March 29.

Spring 2019 course times

LECTURES: Thursdays 2:00-3:20pm (in Week 1, Tuesday AND Thursday 2:00-3:20pm)

DISCUSSIONS (Week 2-10): Tuesdays at 9:30-10:50am, 2:00-3:20pm, or 3:30-4:50pm (see coursesearch.uchicago.edu for full listing of discussion sections). Attendance at lectures AND discussions is required.

How do I register for LRS? Who may register?

For 3rd- and 4th-year undergraduates, instructor consent is not required. Register in discussion sections 15-23.

For students in MAPSS, CIR, or MAPH, please have your Dean of Students or program administrator register for you. MAPSS: Sections 1-7; CIR: section 8; MAPH: sections 9-10.

For PhD or master's students in Humanities, Social Sciences, Divinity, BSD, PSD, or Harris, and for PhD students in Booth or SSA, please have your Dean of Students or program administrator register for you in sections 11-14.

For Law students and master's students in Booth or SSA, you will not be able to register during normal course selection. Rather, you may place yourself on the waitlist beginning March 29, and you will be notified by the end of Week 1 whether you have a seat in the course. You should plan to attend the first two lectures during Week 1 of the quarter (Tues/Thurs 2:00-3:20pm).

What do I do if I didn't get a spot during course selection?

If the course is full (or if your desired discussion time is full), you may place yourself on the waitlist on this page, which will open Friday, March 29.  By Friday of Week 1 (April 5), we will notify those on the waitlist if a spot has opened up in their desired section. Electronic consent requests through my.UChicago will not be granted.

In the meantime, we ask waitlisters to attend the first two lectures on April 2 and 4 from 2:00-3:20pm, as we will be taking attendance. The first assignment will be due Sunday, April 7, and discussion sections will begin meeting Tuesday of Week 2 (April 9).

For undergraduate sections, graduating 4th-years are given priority over 3rd-years. Otherwise, we bring students off the waitlist in the order they signed up, as available seats (in the correct level and time) open up.

What if I got a spot, but now that discussion time doesn't work for me? Am I still guaranteed a spot?

If the course is still open, and you see an open spot in another section that works for you, you are welcome to switch to that section. However, after March 29, we will close all sections to new registrations and manually administer our waitlist. If after that time you learn you have a time conflict, we ask that you drop your spot in the course and place yourself on the waitlist form on this page, where you'll be able to indicate the times you prefer. (Please do not request electronic consent through my.UChicago.) Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee you'll still get a seat. You'll be notified by Friday, April 5 if a space in your desired section time opens up.
